You will need to install the latest VIA Chipset found at:
Version - 5.20a
http://www.viaarena.com/default.aspx?PageID=420&OSID=1&CatID=1070

(requires a restart)

and then install the VIA AC97 codecs incorporated into VT8233, VT8233A, VT8233C, VT8235 and VT8237/R South Bridges found here:
Version - 7.00b
http://www.viaarena.com/default.aspx?PageID=2&OSID=1&CatID=1010

(yep, requires another restart)

Did you ask GATEWAY? Is it on board sound? Has the motherboard been replaced? Did you look on the Gateway site for your computer to get the driver for your O.S.?

No audio driver installed after reformatting my PC


Direct sound is actually referring to Direct X drivers. Do a search for Direct X drivers and download and install the correct ones for your sound card and operating system. Also, if you think your sound card drivers maybe part of the problem go to the Sound Card manufacturer website and download the drivers for your sound card and operating system.

We reformat our pc and we cannot restore the sounds... what shall we do?we are using windowsxp


Hello,
After reformatting the computer you want to make sure you have the drivers for your sound card.
If your sound card is built in you will need the driver set for your motherboard.
Thanks,

I asked for assistance a while back,my problem is somehow I have no sound whatsoever.When I checked there is no sound device listed.I tried as you all said to do a system restore .All I got was"can not...


Hello,

When the computer can not detect any sound card in the hardware manager, the sound card is located on the motherboard probably (on board sound device).
On board sound cards are mounted behind the chassis or plate, while external (pci) sound cards are mounted in an expansion slot (not always available).

See the motherboard connections in the middle (5) and
the expansion slots underneath (6).


For restoring the function of the sound, the matching driver for the motherboards' sound device should be reinstalled.

Reveal the brand and precize model number of the computer, to let me help you finding the correct sound driver.
